Lightweights Host Cornell and Harvard Saturday

PHILADELPHIA – Two Ivy rivals will make their way to Philadelphia to take on the University of Pennsylvania men’s lightweight rowing team on Saturday. Cornell and Harvard will join the Quakers on the Schuylkill River in the first Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges (EARC) regatta of the season for each of the teams.

The opening race will take place at 9 a.m. with the remainder of the races starting approximately every 20 minutes thereafter. The final race, the Varsity 8, is set to begin at 10:20 a.m. The complete schedule is below along with a complete listing of Penn’s probable boatings.

Penn kicked off the spring season last Saturday when they competed in the Murphy Cup Regatta, also on the Schuylkill River. Penn’s first freshman boat finished first in the men’s novice 8 and the second varsity finished third in the junior varsity 8 race.

Though this will be the first competition of the spring season for Harvard, Cornell competed in the Ithaca College Invitational last week with the lightweights finishing second to the Big Red heavyweights in each race.

Complete results of the regatta can be found at shortly after the conclusion of the competition.
